Polycaprolactone (PCL) is a biodegradable thermoplastic used in a variety of medical applications, including bioprinting.
PCL is a thermoplastic polymer that offers enhanced control over mechanical properties of final 3D structures. PCL may be used on its own or printed with matrix bioinks such as gelatin methacrylate. PCL is often used for hard tissue bioprinting such as bone and cartilage.
